brilliantly executed. You will always have a good time with Jeffrey Deaver, guaranteed! The master of the surprise ending here gives us a story told in reverse (just stop a minute to really think about that - this is a thriller novel, not some pretentious 500-page yawn of navel-gazing. This actually has a proper story and to write it in reverse and have everything work this well is a monumental achievement). After thirty-odd thrillers it is hard for a writer to still be able to pull off the kind of surprises that Deaver does here. Having read all of his books I can usually figure out his reveal - something that never, ever spoils the enjoyment of his work. This time I thought I had it all sorted but there are more surprises than you can shake a stick at. If you are a long-time fan like me this has the feel of something like The Coffin Dancer to it. Treat yourself, but it and read it now!
